USODA Team Trials 2017
Brant Beach Yacht Club, Long Beach Island, New Jersey.
By Jacob Zils

Windy, Cold, Challenging and Fun are the four best words to describe this USODA Team Trials! My name is Jacob Zils and I was recently at the 2017 Team Trials. This regatta was a four day event but for me lasted nine days. I arrived, with my mom, late on Friday night in New Jersey. My team and I, practiced on Saturday, Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Our team took a lay day on Wednesday to clean our boats.

When the first day of the regatta came around on Thursday, May 11, I was super excited for my first Team Trials and didn’t have any high hopes placing wise. At the end of the day I finished in 85th out of 223! The 2nd day I dropped down a bit to 98th and by the day 4, Sunday, I finished 100th exactly. We are still hoping and waiting to see if I get invited to an international team, as there is one team left to seed and only a few people in line ahead of me. I had so much fun at this regatta and can't wait for my next team trials.  I enjoyed representing MYC at this event and am glad my fellow MYC Opti sailor, Jack Schuster was there as well. See you on Lake Minnetonka soon!

The Minnetonka Yacht Club is looking for help in running sailing races this summer. If you already have sailing or boating experience, that's awesome, but we can use your help even if your experience is zero! Training is a big part of the program. We are offering part-time paid positions all summer. The club runs weekday races on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, with staff needed typically between about 4:30pm and 8:30pm. On weekends, we run races on Saturdays from 9:00am to 1:30pm, and morning races on Sundays from 8:30am to 12:30pm. The season runs from mid-May till mid-September, but even if you are just hoping for a fun summer job, and even if you only have a day or two available each week, we still can use your help! Likewise... if you are flexible, we may be able to schedule you as many as 4 or 5 days a week.  Please contact Minnetonka Yacht Club Race Manager Blake Middleton at myc@aol.com
